    nothing really new. But I figured since its a new week, it'd be good to update. GO SAINTS, REDSKINS, and PANTHERS!

    I really wish we controlled our own destiny, but the giants should lose to the saints. The redskins......now they arnt a good team. Panthers are a good team, and can beat Atlanta. This is starting to get more realistic.

    Carolina is 6-8 and looks like Delhome will not play

    As I see it here is how the games are going to go over the next 2 weekends....

    week 16
    Car @ Atl (Atl wins)
    NO @ NYG (NO)
    Wash @ StL (StL)
    AZ @ SF (SF)
    Phil @ Dallas (Dallas)

    week 17
    NYG @Wash (NYG)
    StL @ MN (MN)
    Car @ NO (NO)
    Atl @ Phil (Phil)
    SF @ Denver (Denver)
    GB @ Chi (Chi) so it all becomes accademic

    Final records
    Phil 9-7 (8-4 NFC)
    NYG 8-8 (7-5)
    Atl 8-8 (6-6)
    GB 7-9 (6-6)
    SF 7-9 (6-6)
    StL 7-9 (5-7)
    Car 6-10 (4-8)

    GB had their day when AZ upset MN a couple of years ago and that allowed GB to make the playoffs. I don't see the impossible happening again.
    Wasn't it last year that the Bears decided to give the starters an extra week off (to avoid injury no doubt) and let most of the starters rest in week 17. They then had the bye week in the 1st round of the playoffs and they were flat when they hosted & lost to Carolina in the 2nd round? I don't see Lovey making the same mistake again. Plus the fact that he will not want to take the chance of losing to the Packers with his starters on the bench.

    Agreed, and I can't see the Bears laying down to us after 10+ years of the beat downs we gave them. I guess we are just going to have to beat them the best way, at full strenght.

    To tell you the truth, I want their starters in there, so we can have a measurement as to how much we improved this season.

    Agreed. If GB beats their starters no one can say they backed into the playoffs dispite the Giants etal having to lose.
    I would feel better about GB's chances if Brett would have thrown just ONE TD pass in the past 2 games.

    Sorry, I see Carolina play every week and they are not that good. If Delhome cannot play, they will be starting Chris Weinke who ranks 2nd all-time in consecutive losses by a starting QB -- 17 games dating back to the second game of the 2001 season. As of Wednesday, Delhomme's thumb was swollen and he still could not grip the football. Plus, they have a lot of players (Wahle included) on IR -- especially on the line so their running game is lacking.

    The Packer's best chance for an Atlanta loss is week 17 against the Eagles. If the Eagles beat Dallas this week, they lead their division by virtue of the season sweep of the 'Boys. But, in week 17, Dallas plays Detroit so the Eagles will not sit anyone down just in case the Lions, in their ineptitude, win and lose the #1 draft pick. So I would expect Atlanta to have their hands full with the Eagles.

    Pittsburgh beat Carolina because they were able to keep Steve Smith out of the game. As long as he is a factor they can win on any given Sunday
